Since When Did U.S. Public Schools Turn Into Prison Camps?

What in the world is happening to public schools in the United States?  Once upon a time they were safe and peaceful institutions where our young people could get educated and prepared for their future lives as adults.  But in today's "security conscious" America, many public schools are on the verge of becoming literal prison camps, with students regularly being handcuffed, arrested and charged with crimes.
*A 6-year-old girl was recently handcuffed and sent to a mental facility after throwing temper tantrums at her elementary school.
*One eighth-grade teacher in the U.S. has accused her students of committing a "hate crime" because they left a Bible on her desk and a Christmas card with the word "Christ" underlined.
*A while back, a 6th-grader's teacher told him that Jesus could not be mentioned in a Christmas poem that he was writing for class.
If this is what our public schools are becoming, who in the world would want to send their kids there?
